On the northern edge of the huge Tarkine rainforest wilderness, this forest camping area is 10 km east of the Kanunnah Bridge and Sumac Lookout on the South Arthur Forest Dr (C218). At Julius River Reserve, there are 6 sites suitable for vans (not tents) located 600 m past the picnic area. Take an interpretive rainforest walk among ferns, bush orchids, mosses and fungi to a limestone sinkhole, or head to nearby Lake Chisholm for a walk through old-growth myrtle forest to an even more spectacular flooded sinkhole.

This campsite is located in Julius River Forest Reserve

Deep in Tasmania’s north-west, this reserve is a tiny sample of the vast, ancient rainforest wilderness that lies between the Arthur–Pieman Conservation Area and the untracked Savage River Regional Reserve and National Park. Access is possible in a standard vehicle along the scenic, unsealed South Arthur Forest Drive (C218), which loops through the remote forest south of the Arthur River between the Tayetea and Kanunnah bridges.
